Horry-Georgetown County High Schools 15th Annual Juried Art Exhibition
April 17 - May 22, 2016
Diverse arrays of media as well as artistic styles fill the second-floor galleries with color, life and originality - an extraordinary opportunity for area high school art students to gain experience in the actual process of having their artwork exhibited in a professional setting. This year, Coastal Carolina University gallery director and professional artist Jim Arendt was invited to judge the art. Arendt selected the winners of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works, each category receiving a first, second and third place ribbon, as well as a Best in Show and eight honorable mentions. At the conclusion of the exhibition, a People's Choice award will be presented to our visitors' favorite work of art. All ribbons were accompanied with a cash award.

April 28 - May 26, 2016
Opening and Awards Reception: Thursday, April 28th | 5:30 - 7:30 pm

The Art Museum was conceived by a small but visionary group of local art enthusiasts, among them a group of artists formed in the late 1960s called the Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild. Beginning in the spring of 1969, a pattern of art exhibitions was established that continues today. To honor the integral role that the Guild played in the Museum's establishment, the Museum proudly hosts the Guild's annual spring juried art exhibition, which is now in its 19th year. A diverse array of media, including ceramics, drawing, fiber, graphic, hand crafted jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and wood carving, all completed by local artists within the past two years, will be exhibited. This year's judge, Jim Arendt, professional artist an Assistant Professor and Gallery Director at Coastal Carolina University, has exhibited internationally as was recently featured in the museum's 2015 exhibition Indigo: Works in Denim by Jim Arendt.
